The Africa Network for Environment and Economic Justice (ANEEJ) is currently implementing the Civil Society Advocacy to Support Anti-corruption and Rule of Law in Nigeria (CASARN) project. The project is part of the implementation of the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (ROLAC) Programme which is funded by the European Union and implemented by the British Council.
The goal of the CASARN project is to enhance governance in Nigeria by contributing to the fight against corruption, strengthen rule of law and the protection of human rights by reinforcing prevention mechanisms and enhancing civil society and public engagement in the fight against corruption. The expected outcomes are:
1) Improved oversight, transparency and accountability in the management of resources, and
2) Enhanced civil society and public engagement and participation in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
One of the project’s objectives is to support CSOs/Media advocacy for implementation of Open Government Partnership commitments in Edo State as part of effort to improve oversight, transparency and accountability in the management of public resources.
The project will be delivered through series of related activities including research/baseline study, capacity building, budget/project monitoring, advocacy/engagement with government agencies as well as public awareness activities.
A major activity is a two-day workshop for CSOs/journalists on issues advocacy and campaigns around Edo State Open Government Partnership commitments as captured in the State Action Plan (SAP). Edo State government in 2018 joined the open government partnership and a State Action Plan has been developed.
ANEEJ seeks the services of two consultants that will deliver the workshop.
